Warsaw: In Poland, conservative opposition Law and Justice party has won parliamentary elections. Exit polls suggest it has enough seats to govern alone, with an anticipated 39 per cent of the vote.

Its eurosceptic leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski has claimed victory, and the outgoing Prime Minister, Ewa Kopacz of the centrist Civic Platform party, has admitted defeat.

If the numbers suggested by the exit poll are confirmed, it will be the first time since democracy was restored in Poland in 1989 that a single party has won enough seats to govern alone.

An exit poll after yesterday's vote suggested the Law and Justice party picked up 242 out of 460 seats in the lower house of parliament, ousting the governing Civic Platform liberals who had 133 seats.
